Eighth day in that lonely hospital room, and still no clear answer as to why Annie's throwing up. The last couple of days, we ramped up on her Addison's meds thinking that might be the problem, but she threw up again this morning, and twice yesterday. The doc is less inclined to think it's simply a result of under-treating the Addison's--which could be the cause of the nausea & vomiting.

So they placed another IV--her third this week--so that she can get enough fluids. And just to stir the pot more, her blood pressure was high this morning, so she got more medicine for that.

This is just very frustrating for the docs, us, and no doubt, Annie. We feel like we're up against a wall and can't get over it. Please keep praying that God would show us what's causing the nausea & vomiting, and/or just heal her. Please also pray for our kids at home.

Thanks again,


“LORD, it is nothing for You to help, whether with many or with those who have no power; help us, O LORD our God, for we rest on You."
2 Chronicles 14:11

Heal her, Lord, I pray! May Jean and Bill and Annie and the kids at home feel your presence tangibly. Please bless, protect, guide, and provide. Thank You for their faith in You, Father. Thank You for Your new mercies each day. In Jesus' name. Amen.

I love you all and I am praying. I have been at Harborview with my mother for a week now and did not know you were having such struggles. Now I can pray more fervently.

PS I can only guess what you are going through. I am thoroughly exhausted and it does not even compare with your trials.
